Greatest Classical Composers

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Luigi Boccherini

One of the best violin composers in my opinion.

Genio olvidado!
Creador del primer cuarteto de cuerdas de la historia.

122 Franz Lehar
123 William Thomas Mckinley
124 Léo Delibes

One of the most underrated composers of all time... He has written some popular tunes such as the pizzicato from Sylvia and the flower duet from Lakmé which many people would recognize. But aside from that, his work "Coppelia" is one of the greatest ballets in my opinion, up there with Tchaikovsky's ballets. It has drama, excitement and catchy and fun melodies throughout the entire work... Funny enough, Tchaikovsky apparently held Delibes in higher regards than Brahms. Even if you disagree with that, I think the complexity and creativity of Delibes's music is no doubt up there with the other great composers. He needs the credit he deserves! - Absynthe1812

125 Amilcare Ponchielli

Come on, he wrote Dance of the Hours! - Absynthe1812

126 Mikhail Glinka

He's like the father of Russian classical music! Listen to his Ruslan and Ludmila overture - Absynthe1812

127 Octavio Pinto
128 Alan Menken
